If that makes him one of the worst GMs, then boy we've been blessed with amazing ones.
Except for the year in which they
led the conference because other, stronger, teams had injury problems, the Gainey-led Habs ordinarily limped into the playoffs by the skins of their teeth and missed them once. Even in that exceptional year they narrowly avoided being eliminated by the 8th place Bruins, only to be brushed aside like gnats by the Flyers. And wasn't Gainey a significant factor in the Habs' 15th place finish as well in burdening them with onerous contracts? Doesn't that tell you how your defense of Gainey is grasping at straws? If not, it's like your trying to tune into a distant FM station without an antenna.
